You don’t need to be a professional biologist to contribute valuable observations to science and have a great time doing it. Consider joining one of these citizen efforts and help provide valuable information about the birds, wildlife, and natural systems of Montana and beyond. Each project provides a unique opportunity to engage with the communities we serve, in the habitats and Important Bird Areas we’re working to protect. As we enter 2023, Montana Audubon is in a position to leverage our volunteer network to continue promoting the conservation of species of concern through citizen science. There is a project for everyone, and a project almost every month of the year.
Take a look at what we accomplished in 2018 through 2022.

For more than 10 years, Montana Audubon has been a leader in engaging citizen scientists on the ground to monitor species of concern across the state.
These projects, including Climate Watch, will continue year after year.
In addition to what we do at Montana Audubon, other organizations have realized the power of citizen science to address the conservation of important bird species. Here are additional opportunities coordinated by others around the state.
Here is our website that goes into detail about each citizen science project.
